refuse to give up my obsession

Grain de Sable, Corsica, France (by philippe julien)

this is not quite on the itinerary, but this is basically what i expect our sailing cruise through the mediterranean in november to look like. holler if you’ve got any recommendations for any of these ports or the few days we’ll spend on either end in rome and barcelona. i’ve never ever taken a trip like this - or even ever been to europe - and even though this is a terrifyingly adult plan to have made for 2014, it’s also a great thing ot look forward to.

here’s our route:

Quickie trying to make a playoff buddy

no don’t go! I’m not through with you!

I love how at first glance from where we sat it looked like maybe Couture’s skate was caught up in Quickie’s glove but from here it’s obvious Quick was just looking for a fight. 

Why does Chris Evans always grab his left boob when he laughs?

Hello, anon, and thank you for the question.

This topic has been studied by by researchers for years. There are three prevailing theories that I will relay to you now.

1. It keeps him on the ground.

image

You may notice in the gif above that Chris’ leg starts to rise as he laughs, possibly a precursor to his entire body undergoing a sort of lift off due to his joy. Chris then employs his upper body strength to force himself to obey the laws of gravity.

2. To check on his physique.

image

As you may be aware, anon, it takes a lot of hard work to maintain a superhero body. Chris is concerned that in the time he has spent sitting down, sans working out or eating, he has lost muscle mass. Understandably, he feels the need to make sure that he is still a specimen.

3. Object permanence.

image

Object permanence is a term applied to the understanding that an object still exists even when you cannot see it. Chris closes his eyes when he laughs, making him unable to see that he has not disappeared. By grabbing his left boob, Chris knows that he has not somehow ceased to exist.

I hope this helps.

FINALLY. FROM CHURNING MAGMA AND BILLOWING GASES I HAVE SHAPED AND MOLDED THIS PARADISE. ALL THAT REMAINS IS TO POPULATE IT WITH CREATURES MADE IN MY IMAGE. I DON’T WANT THEM TO HAVE TO WORK OR FORAGE FOR FOOD, THOUGH, SO I SHOULD PROBABLY MAKE SOME KIND OF ANNOYING, IGNORANT, SELF DESTRUCTIVE AND NEUROTIC BIPEDAL ASSHOLES WHOSE INTENSE LONELINESS EVEN IN THE MIDST OF THEIR OWN KIND WILL COMPEL THEM TO SHELTER, FEED, ADORE AND PAMPER MY PRECIOUS CHILDREN.

If you saw the second episode of COSMOS, this should sound fairly familiar… It’s been a favorite point of reference for us here this week as we work on this Saturday’s cancer-sniffing dogs story!

The thing with Dickie… it’s like the sun shines on you, and it’s glorious. And then he forgets you and it’s very, very cold. When you have his attention, you feel like you’re the only person in the world, that’s why everybody loves him so much.

Hi! I have stuff on early AIDS history on my blog tagged "early-AIDS-epidemic" and "AIDS history" (should be the same stuff under most tags). I have TONS of (mainstream) newspaper articles - mostly from the wire services - on my computer that I can share. I am working on a draft of a post summarizing some of the articles and providing links/highlights. I don't have an AIDS-specific playlist on YouTube (most videos are included on my other early 1980s playlists) but would be happy to make one.

I will definitely take a look through your tags, and if the videos are not included in there would love a sense of what kind of content they include. please let me know when you post the summary and as soon as michelet and i have worked out some more details we’ll post again here! thanks for offering to contribute.

AIDS teach-in. I will absolutely help you. I was a teenager in NYC in the 80s and in lieu of any way to come out at home or articulate my own crazy, basically spent the 80s and 90s (in washington DC) going to Act Up protests. I recently put together a huge list of resources for my co-author and would be happy to contribute in any way I can.

great, thank you for offering! resource lists are great - i envision this more like a guided discussion than anything else where we curate some key sources along a series of themes so we can spread them throughout tumblr and discuss here. michelet and i are going to work this week on narrowing down the daily themes and then we’ll figure out the best form for submissions.

ironandivy reblogged your post Early AIDS history - Tumblr teach-in and added:

Non-American reblogging to ask, out of curiosity, if this will touch on AIDS outside the states?

good question. right now michelet and i have just been loosely brainstorming themes for maybe one day each for a week, mostly focused on early (pre-1985) and slightly less early (1986-95 or so) history and sources. my goal is not to somehow cover or even crowdsource all of AIDS history so much as provide a companion experience for The Normal Heart that helps expand and enrich at least a little what people might take away from that. i definitely think within that scope it would make sense to also cover “what about not in America” (and for that matter “not in NYC,” which is the real focus of the film). if you’d like to help contribute some of that non-US content, let me know.
